Re: Differences among North (/Duotone) bars

Any certain years you're looking at? Like Yoda said 2013 till now is a bunch of small improvements every few years. I wouldn't buy anything older than the 2014. This is what I remember and was backed up with some cursory googling. 2013 (black and white) - Introduced the push button bar length change...

Re: Why is everyone hating on old kites ?

Because they are dangerous and fly like shit compared to this year's or even a few years ago kites. /thread Yup - it's a miracle anyone survives until "this year's" kites arrive. :jump: "compared to" is the key term. Old cars are dangerous and drive like shit compared to modern cars.

^ that right there.

But I wouldn't worry too much about compression strength since it's behind the tail pad.

Depends a lot on whether you are riding hook or slider.
No it does not.
Sorry, I was referring to whether to wear it loose or tight. Not the op. If you ride with a rope you can wear it really tight. If you ride with a hook, looser can be better.
Only if you like bruised/ broken ribs

Re: Zhik Hydrophobic pants review... warm water protection

BTW the hydrophobic nature of the pants just comes from a coating. Nylon yarns intrinsically do not have any sort of hydrophobic properties, in fact it's hydrophilic.

Honestly all these are is yoga pants with a non whicking coating...

Re: Wetsuit rubber going bad - anything to do?

Another suit. Some polymer have a longer shelf life than others, and the usage factors into that (sometimes even not using it, like with car tires, can be worse).

Re: San Francisco Bay Area in October

Yeah if you're just looking to cruise around, any spot in the Bay will do. But the chance of getting a good day in October is low :/

Re: San Francisco Bay Area in October

October is the end of the season and you can't really count on much/ it's a crap shoot/ could be crazy storm wind.

No one in the Bay Area will rent a kite, but Boardsports will demo boards at Alameda, and Coyote Point.

What sort of riding are you looking to do?
